As soon as I did the water test. I realized that the handle area was leaking steam and would not stop leaking.
After doing this test 3 times and getting consistent results. I realized that the problem was caused by the Euromatic valve located inside the handle. part # 011-631-00-750
I looked up images on the Fissler website for this valve. The valve should have a round white plastic looking tip.
The valve on my pressure cooker did not have this component. It just had a square metallic end.
course of action:
1) Research. I went to the Williams Sonoma store in my neighborhood and looked at their Fissler pressure cookers only to discover that their valves were just like mine! (defective :-)). Yep.
2) I emailed Fissler Usa. Got no reply. I then called them. I spoke to a lady that told me that I would have to mail them the tiny valve. They would then proceed to test it in the laboratory. If in fact it was defective they would send me a new one.
I told her that I had spent close to $300 and the valve is $14 retail. Just send me the valve. . . She said no.
So, finally I bit the bullet and bought the valve from the fissler website. My Pressure Cooker works like a charm. I plan on using it daily. Made pulled pork using a pork shoulder and it was a great success. The cleaning was a breeze. This thing is a tank!
Conclusion: Buyer beware. There must be a huge batch of these problematic valves in the US. Fissler USA needs to realize that and fix it. The actual product is fantastic though.
I do most of my shopping from Amazon and online..
Unfortunately this item is a big loss. From day one, the unit we got leaked pressure, then after 3 months of very light use, the handle which regulates the pressure broke, rendering cooker useless.
Amazon states No return or replacement after 30 days. I should have shipped it back from day one.
Update: ten months on and I am using this at least once a week. You can do so many things with it, and as I expected, it presents weeknight options inconceivable before I had it. Sheer power. And very, very well made.
UPDATE: I received the new Eurovalve in the mail last week. It looked exactly like the old part so I had my doubts whether it would make a difference. When I did the two cup water test with the replaced valve, lo and behold, the valve closed this time and no more steam leaking through the handle! I've cooked pasta and my dreaded chicken and rice dish and no more burning at the bottom. So I've changed it to a four star rating, one star deducted for the defect with the initial valve.
If you are in the US and need support for this product expect terrible customer service from Fissler's North American distributor, Roland Inc. I've contacted several times over the last 2 weeks and have been assured callbacks. All I wanted was some technical support to troubleshoot the product, but I couldn't even get a person on the phone. The operator assured me someone would get back to me. Eventually I did receive an email, but never received a second response.
I wanted to enjoy this product as a friend of mine has one and the results were amazing, but I have no choice but to return the product at this point as the deadline is expiring.
This 1 star review is a result of a defective product and a bad experience with Fissler's lack of customer service.
